Not all mom's love to cook, granted, but most moms and most people for that matter, love to eat! Between cooking for my family, getting pregnant, having cravings, then nursing and being starving all the time, food has basically become a central point in my life. I am a very strong believer in making things, even recipE that officially call for separating wet and dry ingredients, in ONE BOWL! Who wants to do dishes, or even look at a mess once you finish eating, when all you want to do is actually enjoy whatever it is you just made.
Here is a really simple one bowl recipe that is a great, relatively low sugar breakfast or replacement for cookies. Courtesy of my mom and one of her good friends.
1 1/4 c. flour - whole wheat, sprouted wheat, spelt, or white1/4 c. oat bran1/3 c. sugar - or 3 T-1/4 c. Truvia2 c. old fashioned oats4 tsp. baking powder1/4 heaping tsp. salt1/3 c. dried cranberries, nuts, currants, blueberries, or whatever :) Also good with chopped peeled apple and a hint of cinnamon
Mix all of the above ingredients and make a well in the middle
1 whole egg, slightly beaten1/2 c. grapeseed oil or margarine (oil is easier cuz you don't have to wait for it to get soft)1/4 c. almond milk or soy milk
Mix all ingredients well until it forms a sort of dough. Turn oven onto 425 degrees. Then line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or oiled foil, and split the dough in half and flatten into circles about 1/2 " thick on each cookie sheet and score into 8 slices like a pizza pie
Bake for 16-20 minutes depending on how good of an oven you have!
Freezes well and is really tasty warm with some butter or margarine spread on top and served with a glass of your favorite tea or coffee!
